Peoria Alumni Reception, Sept. 23, 2009
Dean Rosato definitely needed her running shoes in Peoria, where she attended a diversity luncheon, spent time with NIU alums in their offices, and visited with the Honorable Mary W. McDade. She was graciously hosted by enthusiastic NIU alumnae Sonni C. Williams (’99) and Valerie Umholtz (’85).
The day ended with a well-attended alumni reception, which highlighted the collegiality and warmth of the Peoria bar. Dean Rosato greeted the attendees and shared her positive experiences as Dean and the pride she felt meeting the alumni in the region.
